It’s time to look back at the top 20 best-selling games of 2019. Industry-tracking firm The NPD Group released its annual report, which details the games that made the most money in the United States. As you might expect, Call of Duty is once again on top. But basketball, football, and guns are still popular throughout the chart.

Overall, the industry generated $14.581 billion in sales from video game hardware, full-game software, accessories, and game cards. That is down 13% from $16.695 billion in 2018. That decline came across all categories.

Software was down 9% from $7.2 billion to $6.6 billion. But hardware was the biggest drag. It dropped 22% from $5 billion to $3.9 billion. Accessories and game cards, meanwhile, dropped 7% from $4.4 billion to $4.1 billion.

Most gaming fans are simply over the current generation and are looking forward to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

“Annual dollar software sales dropped 9 percent to $6.6 billion,” said Piscatella. “Declines were experienced across all platforms in December, while Switch was the only platform with gains for the year.”

Let’s check out the charts.
